Description Dave Maley 2006-03-07 01:34:19 EST
Description of problem: After yum updating to fedora-development last night
(3/5) NetworkManager hasn't kept a stable connection.  It wil stay up and
connected for anywhere between 1-15 minutes, then disconnects.

This is affecting both wired (e1000) and wireless (ipw2200) connections.

I'm attaching a snippet of my syslog during which the problem occurred 2-3
times.  Please let me know if there's any further info needed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable/start NetworkManager
Actual results: connections will drop

Expected results: stable connection

also should note that wpa_supplicant package is latest rawhide (0.4.8-5) and
although it's chkconfig'ed off it does appear to be running in a daemon mode
(when wireless), which makes /sbin/service think it's started:

[dave@flanders ~]$ sudo chkconfig --list | grep wpa
wpa_supplicant  0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
[dave@flanders ~]$ sudo service wpa_supplicant status
wpa_supplicant (pid 7971) is running...
[dave@flanders ~]$ ps -ef | grep wpa
root      7971     1  0 01:45 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -dd -g
dave      7994  2611  0 01:45 pts/2    00:00:00 grep wpa

...and doing a `service wpa_supplicant stop` will cause the wireless connection
to cease working.

Shortly after reporting this bug I started NetworkManager again but left
NetworkManagerDispatcher stopped (didn't have anything configured for use w/
dispatcher anyways).  And since then I haven't encountered the problem.  

Is it possible that NetworkManagerDispatcher is actually the cause of this?
